I have a server running an instance of SQL 2000 and I wish to upgrade this to SQL 2005. I can find loads of information regarding importing databases etc but I wish to simple upgrade the software so that I don't lose all the SQL user info, permissions and settings.

Thanks
John

hi

bassically 9 out of 10 times a simple upgrade will work for you.
just slid the dvd in and run the sql server installer.

i would recommend just before you upgrade use the "Sql Server Upgrade Advisor"
to learn about possible problems and issued your current system could have with the upgrade.

BTW: the sql server upgrade advisor is on the install dvd .
